There might have been an eliminate or risk or investment in his potential with how much we may have paid for Roger Tuivasa-Sheck. But it looks like we gambled on his potential and we came up with a winner.

I prefer a fullback who on kick returns their first instinct is to run direct as it helps with the rest of the team returning on side. Our outside backs were making a lot of yardage on early sets in 2014 when we were going quite well and that was without the fullback really contributing in that area.

The more this season goes and the more he improves the more I'm going back to the original thinking when we signed Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and Luke. We should improve a lot it's a matter of the others lifting with the extra class around them. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck gives us a good support runner, he can link out wide like Tomkins, Luke will hope us around the park and our go forward.

I remember someone earlier bringing up about Gus Goulds comments about the price the Warriors paid for Roger Tuivasa-Sheck being too much. That was when the deal was first announced and all before he went on his extraordinary record breaking run.

I asked a couple weeks back on Twitter whether he still held that view and this was his reply...


Gus dickhead, what a guy. Probably the leader of the anti warriors brigade.

Probably shouldn't care too much about what the Aussie media think....but the gamble Roger Tuivasa-Sheck is taking in terms of on field success and his own development by coming here....is a legitimate point of discussion.

Nice when the yearning for home works in our favor and we have a cap excess problem most years....but Roger Tuivasa-Sheck isn't exactly going from a club where his prospects are limited to a somewhere more promising.

I believe it is Channel 9 who are annoyed the most, hence you hear it from Rabs and Gould.

The Warriors play zero football on free to air, Channel 9 can't be happy about a superstar player, a genuine draw card, leaving Sydney where he will feature less on free to air.

Personally I think Gus Goulds only meant that seeing as we offered him $800K this time we would have to offer him $1 million next time. Maybe more. To get him to stay with league I see him getting more. Maybe around $1.2 million. Warriors and the NRL will have to get together a package to keep him in the code.

The pull of the black jersey will be a very strong one for Roger Tuivasa-Sheck. Same reason why the club will have to pay top dollar for Albert Vete if he goes onto to become a marquee prop...

Roger Tuivasa-Sheck looked really sad in the dressing room last night & said he will "Always: be a Rooster":.
Wonder if he should play Against the Roosters for the Warriors next year.
He might not have the intensity against the side he still loves.

I hope Don Jim brings him to a back room to remind him whose paying him and to cut that shit out.
Or we'll just stick Lolohea at fullback and use the $850k to buy a couple of Taupau's.

Lol imagine if someone like Willie Mason adopted that attitude... He'd only play a few games a season when you remove his previous clubs and suspensions for shoulder charges!!!

All you need to know is he paid similar coin for a back rower and I'm sure soon enough their divine saviour and lord Matt Moylan will request similar or he will hit the market and get similar coin.

Which would be the best use of Dave Smiths captains call system where the NRL will invest to keep a player like Roger Tuivasa-Sheck in league.

Dave Smith is an idiot and it would likely not apply to a team from NZ.
That moron should be sacked, he has more than doubled the amount of administrators and fucked the TV deal, kinda weird that that hasnt been mentioned around here.

Welcome to the Warriors Roger. Have a quick cheerio with your Roosters mates. Head over to NZ to quickly get settled in to your new house. Get a quick tour around the club and make sure the missus is settled before you take a quick detour to the UK. Then see you at pre-season training; cause no your a Warrior.:D
